Going to Egypt has long been on my bucket list: physically written down, no less. In December of 2022 I packed my bags and embarked on a three-week long roving trip around Egypt. I packed four rolls of film, thinking I'd take about 1+ a week. I went through the first roll in two days.

These are the photos from that trip.

When I was 23, I participated in a year-long study abroad programme coordinated between my college in Ohio, and Swansea University in Wales. I knew next to nothing about Wales before I arrived in the country, but its tranquil rolling hills, its expansive beaches, and the misty, quiet allure of its forests soon captured my attention, and my reverance. In this series, we take a closer look at the Brecon Beacons, Gospel Pass, the Gower, and other scenic locations on the doorstep of Cardiff city.

In the winter of 2017, I travelled through northern India for two weeks. My younger sister, now in her late 20s, was adopted from India when she was three and I was seven. This homecoming trip was the first time anyone in the family had been back to India since her adoption. My photos aim to celebrate and explore the sights, smells, and tastes of my sister's homeland. 

This project was shot on Porta 400 and a Pentax ME Super.

Celebrating Christmas in a foreign country with no local connection is a unique experience, and one which I specifically sought out when I travelled to Estonia in December of 2021. Still respecting the pandemic restrictions, this collection highlights a foreigner's perception of Christmas from the outside, when going inside is not permitted.

Family heads home from Tallinn Christmas

Budapest is a playground for photographers. The architecture of the city swings between resplendant and crumbling; between modern and Soviet. Life pulsates through the Hungarian capital, and there is always something new to see. My time in Budapest also corresponded to the first year of the pandemic, and as the country shut its borders to outsiders, I experienced Hungary through a different lens than that usually seen by foreigners.

Wonderest is a zero-waste, environmentally-minded, wilderness-first event that completely rewrites the music festival agenda. Abandoned tents, crumpled beer cans in the mud, and other irreverent momentoes of libidinous festival behaviour are forgotten in the tranquility of open fields, wooded trails, and the strumming of guitar chords. Can this be the start of sustainability in festival-tourism?

Transylvanian evening

The Hungarian town of Mohács is known for its extraordinary Busójárás festival, wherein locals don heavy woolen pelts and terrifying masks, lighting a bonfire in the town centre at the event's culmination to "scare away the winter." The festival involves a noisy, rambunctious parade whereby lookers are subjected to a myriad of pranks played upon them by the costumed "busó men," such as stealing shoelaces or rubbing straw in a pretty girl's hair. Catch the eye of a busó man and he'll reward you with a nip off his hip flask, filled with the fiery Hungarian spirit pálinka—not an experience for the faint of heart!

My dad's side of the family hails from a tiny village in present-day Serbia, once a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 2021 I drove 230 kilometres from Budapest to see the ancestral homeland for myself. What I didn't expect was a warm invitation by the local sexton to step inside the 100+ year old church, the very same one in which my great-grandmother would have attended service as a young girl. Stepping across the threshold was a deep honour, to share that space with my forebears, and this is the photo-documentation of my experience.

In March of 2020, Orbán and his government issued the first message to the Hungarian people that the country would observe a full-scale lockdown to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. Shops closed, tourism sputtered, and eventually the borders closed entirely to outside travel. ​The bustling city of Budapest suddenly became much smaller, much quieter, and much more intimate.

This project was shot entirely on vintage lenses, including those from the Soviet Union.  This series is in reference to the pandemic, but also a nod to Hungary's Communist past, when visitors would come here to "peak behind" the iron curtain.

A 12 hour layover in Amsterdam in the height of the pandemic provided a fresh look at a familiar city. Captured on vintage lenses.

An ongoing series, "Around Ireland" is a living project as I explore her new home of Cork, Ireland. I moved to Cork in August of 2021 and have had my lens pointed around town ever since.
